Carls Bad, California

Grey Matters International, Inc. and the work of Kevin J. Fleming, Ph.D. handles depression and other emotional disorders in a very unique way. Most of therapy or counseling processes utilize validation, unconditional positive regard, and reframing as common techniques to get someone to heal from their depression. Though this can be helpful, it rarely fixes the core problem behind it and for tough cases we then refer them usually to a psychiatrist for medication which can have tons of side effects. Instead, why not try a natural and arguably more effective way to not just change your mind, but change the brain--where the depression is rooted. Contact us at kevin@kevinflemingphd.com.

Depression Counselor

Thomas Schmierer, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

3088 Pio Pico Dr, Ste 203, Carlsbad, California

People errantly think depression is merely about sadness. It is not. The key "emotion" found in depressed people is shame. Their desires, dreams, and goals seem to disappear behind a cloud of shame. If you go to another therapist, you can spend 3-5 years with them never really hitting upon the key issue, shame. Contact Thomas to begin working your way out of your funk today.

Depression Counselor

Scott Wood, M.A.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

11665 Avena Pl., Suite 206, San Diego, California

Every life has times of sadness. When that sadness becomes depression, it is important to get support from a therapist. You can’t “just snap out of it,” and the effects can be devastating. Signs that you might be suffering from depression include a depressed mood most of the day, a loss of interest or pleasure in activities you previously enjoyed, poor or excessive, loss of energy, significant increase or decrease in appetite, thoughts of death. If you are experiencing these types of symptoms, don’t wait to get the support you need. Help is available. I provide a compassionate and supportive environment to assess your situation and work together toward relief. Contact me today.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Online Therapist / Coach

There are many causes for depression and many forms of depression, from reactive depressions to deep internal depressions. Sudden depressions as well as long lasting depressions are not to be ignored. They are serious emotional responses which can benefit extensively from appropriate counseling and therapeutic interventions. Having a caring and listening ear to talk to during a time of depressive despair can be extremely healing. It is often stated that a healthy listening relationship can heal beyond measure. There are depressions which will benefit from medical interventions along with talking interventions. In general, cared for depressions will greatly improve and most will pass.

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

2558 Roosevelt Street, Suite 204, Carlsbad, California

It might be nice to know "where" our depression "comes from", "probably from childhood somewhere", but having that information might not be the most effective key to moving out of it, and live a more purpose driven, satisfying life. I have begun to use hypnosis to help clients access new experiences of their inner strengths and resources, rather than continue to absorb themselves in problems. Therapy using hypnosis can help generate an alternate, more positive view their lives, and facilitate processing information in exciting new ways.

Research shows that the most effective treatment for depression is psychotherapy. Depression can range from feeling down to major symptoms such as having trouble even getting out of bed or contemplating suicide (if you have suicidal thoughts or plans, call the National Suicide Prevention Line at 1-800-273-8255). Online counseling is effective for depression because it is easy to access: you can start treatment without even leaving the house.
